Janet 20 Y.O.

Janet is back. She's 60 pounds lighter, very much in love, and her new album 20 Y.O. is hitting stores tomorrow. In preparation, she stopped by Oprah today to discuss her new album and the infamous "wardrobe malfunction" with Justin Timberlake 2 years ago. People reports:

"We haven't spoken. But I consider him a friend, and I'm very loyal, and friendship is very important to me," Jackson, 40, told Winfrey. "He has reached out to speak with me. Like I said, friendship is very important to me – and certain things you just don't do to friends. And in my own time, I'll give him a call."

Asked if she felt Timberlake failed to stick up for her after the incident, in which he ripped her bustier, exposing her breast to millions of viewers, Jackson replied, "To a certain degree, yeah."

Jackson, who releases her album 20 Y.O. on Tuesday, feels that she unfairly bore the brunt of the criticism after the Super Bowl performance – a sentiment Timberlake seems to agree with. "If there was something I could have done in her defense that was more than I realized then, I would have," he told MTV recently. "I probably got 10 percent of the blame."

Janet is like a stubborn pimple that keeps coming back to the same spot on your face and every time it comes it gets bigger and bigger until eventually it busts into a puddle of gooey liquid that smells. but i love her style and all of her music. Pimples make excellent stars! -Huge Tease

Why do people always have to slag off Janet's brother Michael?He isn't creepy. It is disrespectful to Janet and Michael. Family is more important than anything, Janet and Michael are very close. I blame the tabloids for non Michael fans thinking that he is a weirdo. It is so not true. 2006 may be Janet's big year, but 2007 will be Michael's. His new album will be coming out. And I cannot wait. I am a fan for 23 years and always will be. Janet's new album won't do that well,her old music is way better.
